The "Arr" Song

The Book of Pooh

"Circumference Equals Pirate “Arr” Squared"


Tigger:
Oh listen me swabies, I’ll sing you a song,
A song of the salty sea,
Where pirate ships roam the bounding foam,
And parking is always free!
You want a career as a brave buccaneer,
To swashbuckle near and far,
Well, all that you need is an eye patch and greed,
And buckets and buckets of “ARRRR!”

Piglet:
Arr?

Tigger:
Arr!

All:
Arr?

Tigger:
You’ve got to have arr!
You take what you want and leave a scar!
Arr!

All:
Arr?

Tigger:
We’ll get you with Arr!

All:
A pirate has got to have arr!

Piglet:
Pardon me, Tigger, but what is “arr”?

Tigger:
Well that’s only the most important word in
the whole piratical vocabulatary!

Piglet:
But, what does it mean?

Tigger:
Well…
It’s more than a rag on top of your head,
Or a sword hanging off of your rear,
A scraggly beard or a puffily shirt,
Or a goldeny hoop in your ear,
A hook for a hand or a peg for a leg,
Or some other prosthetic part.
Successful piratiude’s all in the attitude,
You got to have Arr in your heart!
Arr!

All:
Arr!

Tigger:
You got to have Arr!
You say it and generally act bizarre!
Arr!

All:
Arr!

Tigger:
It’s part what you are!

All:
A pirate has got to have arr!

Tigger:
Now, you say it, Piglet.
And really shiver me timbers!

Piglet:
Arr.

Tigger:
We got work to do.
Well, what do you say when you’re happy?

Pooh and Rabbit:
Arr!

Tigger:
And what do you say when you’re sad?

Eeyore and Piglet:
Arr!

Tigger:
And what do you say when you’re itchy?

Pooh and Rabbit:
Arr!

Tigger:
And what do you say when you’re mad?

Eeyore and Piglet:
Arr!

Tigger:
What do you say when you’re hungry?

Pooh and Rabbit:
Arr!

Tigger:
And what do you say when you’re wet?

Eeyore and Piglet:
Arr!

Tigger:
And what do you say when they ask you
What comes after “Q” in the alphabet?

All:
Arr!

Tigger:
Arr!

All:
Arr!

Tigger:
Arr!

All:
Arr!

Tigger:
You gotta have arr!
So what if your swordsmanship ain’t up to par?
Arr!

All:
Arr!

Tigger:
You gotta have arr!
You get a tattoosul upon your arm,
You bust your fear and do cause alarm,
You threaten to sue me with bodily harm!

All:
A pirate is what you are!
